The Worst of Words


A most horrible word.

"Why" gets nothing done. "Why" simply wastes time. "Why" is the creation of the excuse. "Why" is inefficent. "Why" is delays the important question.


"How" is progress. Do not ask why something should be done, ask how. How moves things forward. For example, if you figure out why (for what reason, what karma) someone is dying, you can't fix it with that information. If you ask how they are dying (from what cause), then you can fix the fucking problem.

Don't ask why one must learn the math. Ask how it is done. Then, it will be done, and from there you will understand why.

Only through knowing "how" can one truly understand "why."
